The other day, rather than regale my long-suffering family with yet another public policy rant, I knocked off an oped on a matter of high tech that has, unfortunately, become a political football.
After shopping it around for a while, it found a home in The Canberra Times (if you’ve written something you reckon is okay, don’t give up just because of a rejection or two), published today. But I had forgotten all about it until this evening. So I hit the Times website and made sure it was there. Then I went down the shop and bought a copy.
It was only when I got home that the irony of it struck me. There I was, seeking a copy of my article on broadband internet access, but the web copy wasn’t good enough for me. I had to get the old-fashioned printed copy.
